Anyone change the bars on their Vegas. I have a 07 8-ball and want some sort of drag bars for it. Aftermarket still sucks for Victory so have any of you guys done anything yet? I was thinking of flybars. I'm 6'4'' so I don't reallyneed much pullback. Let me know what you've done and should I tackle the change myself. I'm mechanically capable but never done too much work on bikes, never messed with a throttle.
As far as making the swap goes, you don't have to disassemble your throttle to install new bars - just loosen the housing, slide the whole assembly off your stock bars and onto the new ones, re-torque and you should be good to go.
i ordered a set of bars from socal also! if ordered a set of custom made drag bars in 1.5 inch and drilled for internal wiring. i am really looking forward to them i think they will look a lot cooler than my stock set up.
Let me know how they turn out, i have been completely happy with mine. if you are getting them powder coated, it may take a little longer. he custom made mine and the powder coater comapny he uses waits until they get enough parts to fill the oven, so it took a little longer than expected for me to get mine.
I am a custom snowmobile builder and I have my own powder coating set up so he is sending mine to me uncoated. I am looking forward to getting them they should change the look of the bike alot. send me some pics of yours if you have time [email protected]
kwdunlap: I haven't been on in awhile to check things out but could you e-mail me pictures ofyour bars as well? I think I'm going to order the same ones this winter and maybe I'll just e-mail your pictures to them to make sure I get the same ones.
